St. Ambrose Day 1

We have 6 dancers at the Cleary School’s St. Ambrose Feis in Southern California this weekend and today was championship day. Two of our champs went to compete and we’re excited to announce that they both placed!

There are two levels of Championship. The first level is called Preliminary Championship and the second, and highest level, is called Open Championship.

Both of our loves are in the first level of champs. Maya placed 4th! She has been consistently placing in her championships and already has 1 of her 3 firsts needed in order to move up to the highest level. Congratulations Maya! You did fantastic!

Riley won her championship and received the 3rd 1st she needed in order to move up to Open! Congratulations, Riley, on achieving Open Status. It is hard to get there and we are so proud of the work you have put in to get to this level.

We are very proud of the work these girls put into their dancing and how they represent themselves, our school and our city.

Tomorrow are the grades levels and we have four dancers competing. We wish them the best of luck and look forward to updating everyone on their day.
